"Robert"

/NOC /NOC /NOC /NOC

A phone call in 2010 to a breeder friend that was "just to get on a waiting list" culminated in pretty much the perfect Papillon puppy finding his way to Iowa! Robert had some big paws to fill, as he is the great, great nephew of my wonderful Zack. Robert started his conformation career with a bang, earning a BOB over a special for a major and then on to a Group Three, owner-handled, from the 6-9 puppy class. He was Best of Winners at the Papillon Club of America Regional Specialty in Des Moines in September of 2012, and he then finished his Championship a month later by going BOB over four specials. Robert then quickly finished his Grand Championship in April of 2013 with multiple BOB's over specials. Robert went from NA to MACH in limited showing at just three years of age, and he also earned his CD and CDX in 2013 with an amazing 13 High in Trials during his novice career. He also competed at the 2013 AKC Classic in Novice, where he was the Highest Scoring Papillon. Robert was High in Trial at both the 2013 Papillon Club of America National Specialty and the 2013 Canadian Papillon Club National Specialty, where he was also Best Bred By Exhibitor. Robert also won the Inaugural Papillon All Around Challenge at the 2013 PCA National, which was a showcase for the versatile Papillon breed. In 2014 Robert earned his TD on his first try, and finished his UKC Championship, owner-handled, including a Group Placement. Robert continued his amazing ways by earning his UD at the end of March in 2015. Just 19 shows later and three months after his first OTCH point, Robert finished his Obedience Trial Championship (Robert is Gerianne's eighth OTCH). Robert won many large utility classes on his way to the OTCH, and he also quickly finished his UDX, OM1, and OM2. Robert was the Papillon Club of America's Top Obedience Achievement Papillon for 2015. 2016 was another huge year for Robert; he competed at the 2016 AKC National Obedience Championship in March where he not only won the Toy Group, he placed in the Top 50, along with his housemate, Border Collie Rick. It is a weekend I will never forget! Robert earned his UDX2, OM3, and OM4 in the spring of 2016, and then we switched to the preferred obedience classes, where he earned his PCDX and PUTD. Robert also finished his MACH2 and C-ATCH in 2016, and he then switched to the preferred classes in agility as well. Robert continued working on his Preferred Obedience Championship in 2017, and he completed his PUDX in August. He also showed just a couple weekends in agility in 2017, earning more Double Q's towards his PACH. Robert also earned many UKC nosework titles in 2017, along with some AKC Scent Work titles. In 2018 Robert finished both his POC and his PACH, making him the most Champion-titled dog in the history of AKC. He has earned an amazing 43 Obedience High in Trials, along with many High Triple and High Combined awards in AKC rally. He has also earned many High in Trials and High Combined Awards in UKC rally, along with numerous UKC and AKC nosework High in Trials. In 2019 Robert finished his RACH, and he became my second UKC Elite nosework dog. He placed eleventh out of 69 dogs at the Championship level at the 2019 AKC Rally National Championship, and during the same weekend he made it all the way to the Challengers Round at the AKC Agility National Championship, eventually placing seventh overall in the four-inch preferred division. What a weekend! Robert earned 20 titles in 2019, including his UKC Rally Championship, and he is also closing in on his overall AKC Master Nosework title. In 2020 we are looking forward to working on his UKC Nosework Championship, and we will be doing some very serious tracking training! Robert has been a dream come true both as a competitor and a wonderful pet. At home, Robert is the perfect pet, and Border Collie Riva adopted him as her very own puppy; Robert missed her terribly after her death, as the two of them were seldom more than a few feet apart. Robert is currently training a new Border Collie female to be his protector, Rayna. George, Rick, Rayna and I continue to be captivated by this adorable, happy, fun little dog!
